Mia is a registered psychologist with a Doctorate in Psychology based in Richmond. She has many years’ experience working with adults of all ages in private practice and also has experience working in some forensic contexts. She works with adults across a broad range of issues and is particularly skilled in treating adults with anxiety, depression, phobias, low self-worth, adjustment and loss, trauma/abuse and victims of crime.

Mia recognises that it can be daunting to speak to a psychologist and to share one’s private world. Mindful and respectful of this, her therapeutic approach is one of unconditional positive regard. She provides a warm and non-judgmental space where her client can feel safe sharing their story and feel empowered to make change.

As all people are different, Mia’s collaborative approach is tailored to the individual, informed by the client’s own unique situation, preferences and needs. She draws on a number of modalities for a client-centred experience, including Cognitive Behavioural and Mindful based therapies, Narrative Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and has training and experience in Emotional Freedom Technique. Mia is conversant in stress management and is trained in EMDR.
